Turkey Fajita Pizza from www.tasteandtellblog.com

I promised you one more turkey recipe, and boy – am I here to deliver! I have been on a total pizza kick lately. I can’t get enough of it. I also can’t get enough Mexican food. Seriously – I could eat enchiladas or tacos or burritos several times a week, and I probably wouldn’t get sick of it.

So of course – what happens when you combine pizza night with Mexican night?? And throw in some leftover turkey? Pure magic on a pizza, that’s what!!

I knew before I even made this pizza that I would like it. Really, you can’t go wrong with the flavors of fajitas all thrown on top of pizza. But I loved it even more than I thought I would. I thought it would just be a good way to use up that leftover turkey, but this was a favorite that was devoured.

And whatever you do, don’t skip the avocado. I used delicious Avocados from Mexico , and the simplicity of sliced avocados on a hot pizza – well, it was heaven. I love the creamy element they add, and this pizza would simply not be the same without them.

Now my mind is spinning with more possibilities – taco pizza, enchilada pizza… Looks like I’m going to be busy in the kitchen!!
